    Re: 458 Supertest

    Circuit times are similar to Scuderia and the '09 GT3 which cannot be bad.

    We have to see the Turbo S and GT2 RS circuit times to put the above in perspective.

    Turbo S is Porsche's rival in concept and the GT2RS rival in price.

    Turbo S (AZ acceleration): 0-100km 3.0s

                                                  0-200km 10.0s

    Good improvement over the 430's time of 7:55.

    7:38 is an impressive time, better than what I expected. 


    Re: 458 Supertest

    Excellent time!!


    Re: 458 Supertest

    Track time is excellent but especially the 0-100 kph time but also the 0-200 kph time is a bit disappointing. I actually expected something closer to 10 seconds flat.

    Reminder: the new 997 GT2 RS does 0-200 kph in aprox. 9.5 seconds according to a Porsche source (don't remember if the official specs are already available).

    Similar to Scuderia indeed. Enough said.

    More PS (10%) but mostly the efficiency of the new transmission.

    458 on normal tires. Scuderia on sport tires.

    458 on sport tires would be considerably quicker.

    Too much weight. Just my two cents.

    Re: 458 Supertest

     Give credit where credit is due. Ferrari has vastly improve the performance of the next generation 430. 

    The S will be hard pressed to turn the Ring with the same numbers.

    That said, in this day with many good and cheaper super sport cars the 458 33-50% premium to get similar performance is not a good value. Which leads one back to why buy a Ferrari. Exclusivity, Italian styling and passion. Just don't race the others cars on the street.

    Improved indeed in comparison with F430.

    BUT... Price of the  test car... 250K €...

    As I wrote few weeks ago-very, very good results. Nothing more IMHO.

    Honestly, I expected little bit more, specially for 250K €...


    Re: 458 Supertest

    Since when are Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Paganis etc bargains? If you want best value for money you buy yourself a GTR...

     Not quite - the Michelins on the 458 are apparently close to Cups in terms of dry performance (SportAuto says so + the wet handling times are that worse that I tend to believe the comment on tyres in the text) Smiley
